Meaning:

O Most Beloved Divine Lord Sri Sai, Thou art Most Beautiful. Thou art Lord Shiva – The Supreme Divine Lord of The Entire Cosmos and art drapped in tiger-skin. Thou art Lord Harihara i.e. Thou art both Lord Sri Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Thou art Lord Sri Hari i.e. Lord Sri Vishnu. Thou art Lord Hara i.e. Lord Shiva. Thou art The Store-House of Innumerable Virtues and Accomplishments. Thou art The Most Beautiful, Divine Cosmic Dancer in The Entire Cosmos. (There is a Harihara Temple in Orissa, which is the only one. It is known as The Lingaraja Temple in Bhubaneshwar and is dedicated to Lord Harihara. The main deity of the temple is Hari-Hara i.e. half Shiva and half Vishnu. The Swayambhu Linga is not strictly a Shiva Linga but a Hari-Hara Linga i.e. half-Shiva and half-Vishnu. The Diety Enshrined in The Temple is also known as ‘Tribhuvaneshwara’ which means ‘Lord of The Three Worlds. The temple was built from 1090 AD to 1104 AD. The Lingam in the Sanctum is made of un-carved granite without any embellishment. Tradition says that one should first visit this temple before going to Puri. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu too, came here before going to Puri. Non-Hindus are not permitted to enter the temple and this rule is strictly enforced. The Shiva linga is bathed daily with water, milk, and bhang. There is a four-day chariot festival every March-April when Lingaraja is drawn on HIS chariot to the Rameswara Temple.)
